The latest celebrity to join the PETA craze is rocker Dave Navarro. He wasn’t shy when it came to his photoshoot to benefit the organization.
He did a full-frontal pose that shows off his numerous tattoos. As for coverage? He used nothing but his hands to cover up his junk. The tagline reads, “Ink, not mink. Be comfortable in your own skin and let animals keep theirs.”
Dave told PETA, “Several years ago, I saw video footage of animals being skinned alive and screaming, and it, it honestly is the most horrific, inhumane thing I’ve ever seen. These animals are often still conscious as they have their pelts peeled off their writhing bodies and can be heard screaming in pain.”
He also gave some of his personal tips that others can follow. “Some of the simple things you can do to help save animals is not buy fur, stay away from products that have been animal tested. It’s really very, very simple to just support something or buy something that doesn’t brutalize animals like this.”
Check out the behind-the-scenes look from Dave’s shoot. But we’ll warn you—it’s graphic!
